that have been coming out of washington around the fiscal cliff. when it looks like there is some movement made, when it looks like there's a deal that could be reached, you see the markets go up. when things look bleaker, the markets are going down. that's not the case today and has people wondering, okay, is this just posturing? is wall street getting used to the posturing and where do we go from here? personal income numbers were unchanged and consumer spending numbers down. that was worse than expected. these numbers were thrown off by sandy. at this point i think wall street is easing into friday. chris, back to you. >> maybe they're just happy it's friday, becky. >> reporter: i am. >>> well, it didn't take long for republicans to reject the president's proposed solution to the fiscal cliff crisis. now harry reid says it's the republicans turn to put out their own plan. with me now tennessee republican congresswoman diane black who is a member of both the budget and ways and means committees. congresswoman, thank you for joining me. we had some reporting earlier that said don't expect
